PSALM 91:1

  1. He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty (Whose power no foe can withstand). Amp.

Today we return to the scriptures after our break with the Apocalyptic Updates. I thank Cheryl for all the great info she provided for the Updates. She has a gift of finding great end times events that point to the times we are living in.

In Psalm 91 we are always singing about the secret place of the Most High like it is a matter of fact. But if we really look at the scripture this is “His secret place” and not ours, our secret place meaning the place where we go to seek Him. Where then is His secret place?

We definitely want to be safe where no foe can withstand. I would love to be fixed and stable at all times. But sometimes I still get emotional and shook for nothing. I think the answer is in Colossians 3.

Colossians 3:3 For as far as this world is concerned, you have died, and your new real life is hid with Christ in God. Amp.

This is kept secret from the world and is with Christ in God. We have been raised to a new life by His resurrection power and we must learn a new way of living. In verse 2 it says to set our mind on what is above and not on earthly things. That would cover most of the media that this whole world is in love with.

In verse 5 we are to kill all that is earthly within us. The best way to die to the evil within us is to stop feeding it. If you have a plant and you stop giving it water and sunlight, it will die. That is why we must resist sin. If we keep feeding that thing it will live on. We must cease and it will die.

The rest of chapter 3 is dealing with how we treat one another. No more bad feelings toward one another. We must learn to love even when it hurts to love. Do we think it was easy for Jesus to say, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do?” He must have felt great rejection as He was tortured and killed for being righteous. How did He do it?

He was in the secret place of the Almighty and was fixed and stable. No foe could have withstood Him had He not allowed it. We are in Christ and are crucified with Him. We are to learn to love with that kind of impossible love. How do we do it?

We know that love is one of the fruits of the Spirit. So we must be emptied of self and filled with His Spirit. Col. 3:12 tells us to be clothed by putting on behavior marked by tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, and patience – which is tireless, and long-suffering has the power to endure whatever comes with a good temper. We must practice loving others.

This is telling us that it is patience that gives us the power to endure whatever comes with a good temper. This is the hardest part of love. How did Jesus endure loving those who were crucifying Him with a good temper?

We must put on love (vs. 14) and let peace rule (vs. 15). Can you imagine the difference in our life if we could let peace rule all parts of our life? We must make the decision to let peace rule and calm down.

This comes only with God’s love in us. It never fails, bears up under anything and everything that comes and is always ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances. 1 Cor.13:7-8

We do not have this kind of love within ourselves. We must die to self and allow God to love others through us as we are filled with His Holy Spirit and dwell in His secret place with Christ. The hardest thing we will ever do is love like Jesus loves. But that is what He wants from us and that is what we must do.

We ask you Holy Spirit to empty us and fill us with God’s love so we can dwell in the Secret Place of the Almighty safely all the rest of our days.
